This morning was the first day of the week that I opened the window blinds and did not observe frost on my neighbors’ rooftops. I don’t know what happened to the nice spring weather that visited us on last week. As the rain beat outside my window, I buried myself in studies, but this afternoon I have decided to lift my head and reflect on a few notable quotes from women as we close our Women’s History Month.
Regardless of your current income, Americans are quite wealthy compared to people living in other parts of the world. Therefore, we have a responsibility:
“Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for your enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.” 1 Timothy 6:17-19
…okay and a few Blacks, and one Asian (I think). Diversity is a beautiful thing and I look forward to the day when we have even more diversity within my local church.
